Obama: Conn. Shooting 'Should Give Us Some Perspective' on Fiscal Debate 12:33 PM, Dec 19, 2012 • By DANIEL HALPER Single Page Print Larger Text Smaller Text Alerts

When responding to a question about the "fiscal cliff" and House speaker John Boehner, President Barack Obama invoked the shooting at Sandy Hook school in Connecticut.

"If this past week has done anything, it should give us some perspective," said Obama, looking at wistful.

The "fiscal cliff" debate, it seemed Obama was saying, should be gentle because of the mass shooting in Connecticut late last week.

Obama addressed the press to announce that he'd be tackling guns in America by starting a commission headed by Joe Biden. Then, Obama took a few questions -- most of which did not relate to guns.

Yeah, sure Obomoo.
Let me guess, you’re going to snap and do the same to the country unless you get what you want.
Just like that OTHER spoiled jerk in Connecticut?

...Then, Obama took a few questions...

It was painful to watch. After his prepared remarks it was blithering time.

He just spouts irrational nonsense (from the Department of Redundancy Department) which will then be gobbled up by his followers as “wisdom” and “clear thinking”.

Up is down, left is right, black is white, tyranny is freedom, etc.

Meaning he’ll hold even MORE concessions on the fiscal debate hostage until we repeal the 2nd Amendment.

What the hell is that even supposed to mean?

Someone just putting random words from the headlines into the teleprompter.

He’s also using their deaths for fund raising. David Axelrod sent out an e-mail showing the TOTUS in Newtown with the suggested amount at the end.

They're just using him as a face. The commies and socialists have had the gun grabbing legislation drawn up for decades. They've even got the paperwork ready for the next "gun free zone" mass murder.
They need these mass killings to push their disarmament agenda. Like all the communists and socialists before them, they cannot acquire absolute power until the people are defenseless.

My perspective: Obama not only wants to destroy my economic freedom but also my right to bear arms.

He is altogether a Constitutional moron.

This is what it means....

“You can not rationally deal with irrational people.”

As it applies to the fiscal debate, the GOP cannot rationally deal with the irrational democrats. They have a goal of raising taxes. No amount of math, statistics or historical data will sway their plans.
